Marcelo: “Real Madrid has been ‘a dream’ since day one”

As the Brazilian defender enters his fifth year in a white shirt, he confesses that he is happy and proud to be at the club and has evolved as a player at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Marcelo has spoken of his happiness with life at Real Madrid, describing his time at the club as a ‘dream’.

The 23-year-old arrived at Los Blancos from Fluminense in January 2007 and has been a regular member of the first team at the Santiago Bernabeu ever since.

Saturday’s La Liga match against Granada will mark Marcelo’s fifth year in a Madrid shirt, and the Brazilian is thrilled with how things have gone for him at the Spanish capital club.

“I have learned a lot here,” he told the club’s official website. “It has been a dream since the moment I first donned this shirt.

“Many players want to be on this team and I am proud to wear this shirt in every game and to make the fans happy.

“I have given my all since I arrived and I hope to give much more to help the team. I have been here five years and I wish to stay many more.

“It makes me immensely proud to wear Real Madrid’s shirt and to be the team’s third captain.”

The Brazil international, who has so far made 20 appearances in all competitions this season, has a contract with Madrid until 2015. (

Goal against Espanyol!

Madrid always gets. Also this time, hooked up to the best of their tradition, after a tremendous match that offered all that was heroic. Soaking the shirt to polish it, inviting fans to cling to the straws, doubling the best Espanyol in a decade. And with ten men for 88 minutes, many of which earned two (Marcelo, Christian, Xabi and Pepe), shot 20 times.

Florentino came two minutes before the break and a cup less. One misfortune after another. Because the frog swallowed basketball and missed a first half of breaks and tears, with a Madrid irreducible, every nerve and heart, as its anthem. What you have seen and been told that Guardiola, who sees no enemy dead on or after the autopsy.

The party awoke to the shock of Casillas. Red was the fastest he has seen the Madrid League nearly eighty years. Baena went through two lines with his deep ball, Alley took the wrong foot with Pepe and Casillas played striker before the parakeet entered the area. No relajadísima saved or interpretation of customary law that Mateu Lahoz.

Di Maria Mou retired, turned right into Özil and drew two lines of four, with Adebayor, gazelle and giraffe crossing on the bow. And the game was a pretty crazy, with a bold and enlarged Madrid in their misfortune that eventually turned to Kameni in the figure of the party.

Khedira broke stove with an open mind. Xabi Alonso was above Javi Baena Marquez, a couple very glad to Cornell. Pepe is pretty much what Mourinho said when pressed to renew it. Cristiano was always a good response to the backlash and even offered as a dam when the truth came over Espanyol. Divo and antidepressants in the same match. And was at times Marcelo Di Stefano, Puskas and Gento. Advocate, creator and scorer, all at the speed of light. Sent a whiplash to the stick, took a lot to Kameni and ended up scoring the goal that decided the match. Is a minute of Roberto Carlos.

Accompanying them and the rest, Özil excluded (the game always sounded ‘allegro’ and that not doing) that more than a pillar seemed like a bad transplant so fierce contest, was feasting Madrid Espanyol from the intensity and rigor. Has merit, because the confluence at the same time and same place Pochettino, Cornell and the proper cultivation of the quarry have hardened much parrots, now a team always wanting to fight, never retreating, proud to get the most of this policy of ‘low cost’. And Alley, over quota for Madrid but terrific footballer, gigantic.

But before the break is that Madrid was a beast. Kameni examined, Khedira, Adebayor and twice Marcelo, who ended up knocking the Cameroonian by his club. These goals always leave the goalkeeper poorly and yesterday was no exception. Also swallowed a penalty Khedira Mateu Lahoz. After compensated by stating a non-existent offside when faced Adam Alley, which began and ended grown nervous.

Madrid rest became a cheaper and more tired. Oxygen tanks would have admitted at times. Especially when he began to Espanyol Callejón the loins, and hung a goal on three occasions. But it also had an answer. Cristiano accelerator was not available to the twelfth Pochettino defense in 23 games and Adebayor got caught in two side by side with Kameni. As he ran before he was forgiveness and repentance. There League. The suffer, but do not miss it.

Great game against Athletic Bilbao

Real Madrid 5-1 Athletic Bilbao

Just a week before the Classic, and just two hours after the Real Madrid Barcelona órdago responds to another rout. There were eight, but five, but yes, in front was a great battle Athletic planted at the Bernabeu. However, the white set of punch shot to keep the lead and it did not fail at key moments. Already said in the previous Caparros: Real Madrid does not need to tiki-taca because tic-toc is enough … and it was. And what stuck on the other side! And two of the three goals he signed Ronaldo were the very best that has been in this league. The first, following a book, and second with one of her ‘tomahawk’ from 35 meters. Two flashes of many carats do justice to the level that showed both teams on the pitch during the first sixty minutes.

And this despite the fact that until a few minutes before the start of the match between Madrid and Athletic Bilbao in the environment merengue was still discussing the controversy of Gijón, the Classic and the rout of Barcelona, where Mourinho would be located, etc., etc. . Yes, twenty-two players soon regained prominence and focused all outbreaks. Not surprisingly, in the second minute, and Llorente was close to scoring with a brilliant idea to get between Khedira and Carvalho inside the area and that only Peter could not help almost under the line. And that was only the prelude to what came next. And is that white and certified rojiblancos first part of emotion, goals, and tension with a Athletic can boast of being one of the most serious of all teams who have gone so far by the Bernabeu, including Atletico Madrid.

With a midfield very well connected and binding short Xabi and Khedira, the rojiblancos Casillas came to the area fairly often and very biting, using a little soft defense of Madrid today. To the extent that if Susaeta and Llorente scored midway through the first part was because they had the best goalkeeper in front of the world and master of Madrid was not a lamb. Without that connection enabled in the center, the whites found in the counterattack and the lashes of Di Maria and Ronaldo dismast good resources for the Basque box. And as we said in the previous Caparrós with that and the famous tic-toc was enough to get ahead on the scoreboard 2-0.

Along Higuain scored the first twenty minutes after receiving a ball to Di Maria in the crown of the area and protect it like a small football pivot is involved. Ustaritz Amorebieta and failed to steal the ball and the Argentine scored and just before Iraizoz. And just ten minutes later and right on the play after the Madrid Casillas saved the white set back to score in what is sure to be one of the most beautiful goals in the league following a manual of these: Theft from field own band pass to Higuain, the second focuses on Ozil touch it moves through the center, Germany gave Ronaldo his first touch as a bullet entering and Portuguese brand from the balcony of the area practically alone. Only a framework could do much more beautiful meringue. Tic-toc.

Despite two goals, a serious Athletic did not give up at any time. I looked into the eyes of Madrid knowing that he was not being infinitely superior, and found his prize at the edge of the break thanks to an outstanding Llorente, who hammered in front of goal a play after a cross jumbled no bloco by Casillas. The 2-1 was just seen on the field, but today the white pasted never missed an appointment and shortly after the restart, Madrid away again with two new lashes. The first, Di Maria, who struck gold with a penalty of Susaeta absurd. Sergio Ramos (yes, Ramos) was the one who scored the third for five minutes after Ronaldo had sealed victory also meringue pieces. Now then, as from three times farther than the beds.

Iraizoz failed to clear a ‘tomahawk’ from 35 meters of the ‘7 ‘merengue that slipped through the center of the goal with a violence worthy of study. Tick-tock, tick-tock, another goal to frame and three points in the bag without touching the excellence with the ball at his feet. Once with four on the back, and yes Athletic got carried away the last half hour, seeing that he could do nothing with the punch merengue. Of course, there was time for Javi Martinez slammed a ball off the crossbar, that had a goal disallowed for offside Barn by prior, and that little hand sign Ronaldo penalty. A week before the Classic, Ronaldo could not be less than Messi and this time did not let anyone throw it to certify a hat-trick which involved the icing to get it just right before leaving for Barcelona.
